This article gives full details of the derivation and operation of a tool that has been devised to enable small business to track their environmental footprint. We present the case of the Australian company – Oztech – in which we developed the tool. The case uses emissions factors applicable to Australia. However, the tool can easily be converted to the local conditions of any country if the relevant national government has calculated emission factors that describe typical industrial activities within that country. This tool is a robust framework for environmental reporting for small businesses, which lack resources compared to large corporations, who would like to track and manage their impact and contributions to the environment.
